Title: Enigma - first steps (programming)
Post by: darkhog on May 23, 2014, 08:08:11 AM
I've never been good friends with C/C++ (click to see why) (https://www.google.pl/search?q=pointer+hell&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:pl:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb&gfe_rd=cr&ei=EUd_U4BgpN7yB4_JgcgH).

But I'm okay with c-like languages (has been programming in Java and C# for last 5 years). Could you give me some EDL-focused tutorials? I could use GM tutorials, but workflow and syntax is bit different and I'd like to avoid banging my head against wall over something that is correct in GML, but not in EDL.

Of course such tutorials should be beginner-friendly, but without basic concepts like variables, loops, etc, focusing on using EDL's library instead.

Darkhog, just about 80% of GML is currently compatible in ENIGMA. Some places you may have issues are with arrays. The only reason we don't have near full backwards compatibility is because we have not integrated Josh's new compiler.
